Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations against Father John Farrand:

Father John Farrand, a member of the Jesuit order, allegedly abused a minor in 1961, around the time a report was made to the Jesuit provincial.   While the nature and details of the abuse were not publicly released, the Order says notes in his personnel file indicate that Farrand admitted to the abuse.

As a result of his admission, Farrand was transferred to nearby Brooklyn Prep, where he continued to have access to minors. After that, he went on to teach at a school in France, a school in Puerto Rico, and then returned to New York and taught at Loyola School from 1976 until 1997.

Farrand died in 2003, apparently as a priest in good standing.
